a Blade of Grass has been awarded APLD’s 2019 Silver Award for Residential Design for the design and installation of our “Belmont Carriage House” property. The APLD International Landscape Design Awards Program honors excellence in landscape design. Projects in eight different categories are judged on the basis of difficulty, craftsmanship, attention to detail and execution. We are, obviously, immensely honored and proud of our amazing designers and our installation and maintenance crews. Check out the entire photo gallery of this beautiful property.
Blade’s design sales manager, Colin Hand, and senior landscape designer, Tom Wilhelm, lend their advice to Wellesley Weston Magazine‘s readers regarding improving their home’s curb appeal, without breaking the bank. Sticking with classic styles, clean lines, and creating an engaging “entry experience” are a few of their suggestions – be sure to check out the entire article to learn more about this very common question.
Every year our team gets bigger and better. And so it is again – we’re looking for talented (and fun) people to make a Blade of Grass even more amazing.
